As first reported back in January, the Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority (PSTA) Route 74 has been on detour in the Gateway area of Pinellas due to construction along Gandy Blvd. In March, changes were made to the route to accommodate the closure of the 16th St N interchange at Gandy Blvd. Since the opening of the 94th Ave N interchange with Gandy Blvd in April, the detour routing has changed once again. Please see the diagram below for the current detour routing.
Please keep in mind that further changes to Route 74 may be made between now and the October, 2016 service change cycle. For the October service changes, significant changes are being planned for Routes 4, 59, and 74, among others. A separate blog post will follow regarding the June and October service changes. Any specific information regarding the Route 74 detour, and any upcoming route changes, should be directed to PSTA. You can contact PSTA at 727-540-1900.
